 About the Department


The Jean Monnet Chair on “Turning points in European Integration: governance, politics and identity in the EU” has been established under a grant of the EU Education, Audiovisual and Culture Executive Agency (EACEA) received by Professor Ewa Latoszek in July 2013. Its capacity is to develop, adapt and transfer current ideas and knowledge about EU will have a potential essential for the process of strengthening the European Higher Education Area. The Chair's aim is to show a new perspective of the integration process in the new economic and social contexts in Europe and the world  and will contribute to improvement and development of the European Studies at WSE. The JM Chair programme strengthens the connections between the different education modules at Warsaw School of Economics. The Chair programme  has an interdisciplinary character and offers lectures in Polish and English at BA and MA levels. One course is also addressed to PhD studies attended by the representatives of different professions.​

The Jean Monnet Programme is part of the EU's Lifelong Learning Programme. Originally launched in 1989, these projects are present in 72 countries across the five continents. Between 1990 and 2011, the Action has helped to set up 162 Jean Monnet Centres of Excellence, 875 Jean Monnet Chairs and 1.000 Jean Monnet Modules. These projects bring together 1.500 professors, and reach approximatively 500.000 students every year.  The Jean Monnet Chair stimulates teaching, research and reflection on European integration in higher education institutions worldwide. Jean MonnetChair projects are selected on the basis of their academic merits and following a process of rigorous and independent peer review.
